Review: Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense SPF 50+ #Shiseido #sunscreen

(product photo courtesy of www.shiseido.com)

Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense SPF 50
Shiseido Future Solution LX Universal Defense SPF 50+ is an innovative and luxurious daytime protective cream for the face, neck, décolletage and body. It intensely defends against modern day aggressors such as UV rays, air pollutants, dryness and photo-environmental radicals *. It helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots, roughness and wrinkles for healthy, beautiful-looking skin now and over time. Its rich texture has a comfortable application that leaves skin feeling smooth and it also leaves skin feeling very hydrated. It can also be used as a primer under foundation for flawless skin and maximum protection. 

This broad spectrum sun protection has an SPF of 50+ and contains Octinoxate 4.9%, Octocrylene 3.0 %, Oxybenzone 1.0% and Zinc Oxide 15.4 %. The first three are chemical sunscreens and the last is a mineral sunscreen. The zinc oxide in this is high and it does give the product some trouble when smoothing it in. But eventually it does smooth in very well, it just takes a little bit longer because of the higher percentage in the cream.

This cream is formulated with Gentiana Urnula Flower Extract to help protect against harmful radicals; is also formulated with an exclusive Skingenecell 1P to provide age defending benefits; a hybrid anti-pollution powder that helps protect the skin against various air pollutants**; has SuperVeil-UV 360™ technology for even coverage and powerful UV protection; is made with Aura Radiance Powder that has a unique light reflection technology and helps to blur signs of aging, promotes a brighter, more even looking skin tone; this cream is water resistant for up to 40 minutes; and Cashmere Touch Emulsion Technology creates a dewy, non-greasy texture for a moisturized, smooth feel on the skin. The best way to use this is to take an appropriate amount and smooth onto the palm of the the hand and thoroughly blend into the skin. Use as the last step in the skincare routine.

I really like this sunscreen. It works as a sunscreen, moisturizer and a primer all rolled into one. It is very thick and you don’t need much to cover the entire face, neck and décolleté. It absorbs into skin quickly. As mentioned above there is a slight white residue on the skin but it does disappear very soon. This cream does work quite well as a sunscreen. I have been using it for weeks now and have not had any problems with my skin getting more freckles or sun damage. It is slightly dewy on the skin, which is nice too. So if you decide not to wear foundation, this cream leaves skin looking beautiful, not flat and matte like most sunscreens. And is sinks right into the skin, making it non-greasy and no residue left to touch. 

*Can be generated by daily pollutants when exposed to UV rays.

Raw Dark Cocoa Powder




This is a particularly fine Cocoa Powder. It is organic for one. Second, it is dark cocoa powder, which means it tastes heavenly. I made truffles with this, using cream and regular chocolate then dusting them in this lovely cocoa powder. OMG! So good! This cocoa powder also makes lovely hot chocolate too.

 It is made from the very best cacao beans that can be found. Of the 3 existing variations of cacao, the Criollo, the Forastero and a hybrid of the two, the Trinitario it is the Criollo, that is the rarest and richest variety. When the Criollo is also "Arriba" (high altitude grown) than it is hailed as the 'emperor of Cacao beans" -for its unique flavor and delicate aroma, honoring the true essence of good rich dark chocolate. Unlike more commonly found , cheaper commercial cocoa products often derived from the Forastero variety for its abundance and convenience, whereas this cacao is only sourced from the highest quality beans from Arriba Criollo pods.
Characterized by a unique flavor profile, with notes of vanilla and hints of caramel a complete lack of the bitterness commonly associated with Forastero and Trinitario. This delicious super food will transform smoothies, desserts and other treats. The raw organic cocoa powder is unique, creamy and smooth, full of rich chocolate flavor. It has no bitter taste or gritty mouth feel. Retaining all its purity, the cocoa is non-GMO project verified, gluten free and vegan friendly. It is especially good for desserts though! It sells on Amazon.com for $17.99 (http://amzn.to/1iIeS3r). 

Review: StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask #StriVectin #mask #RevitalizingMask

(product photo courtesy of www.strivectin.com)

StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask
StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask is an intensely nourishing 15 minute revitalizing facial mask that restores clarity and immediately illuminates skin. It contains an effective complex of skin brightening actives that help to even out the complexion, helps skin to become more even toned and it promotes a smoother, more younger looking complexion. The patented NIA-114TM technology combines with natural alpha hydroxy acids to help boost skin cell renewal and optimize skin health. As skin texture becomes more smoother and more refined, the complexion appears revitalized and it awakens a more youthful looking glow to the skin.
 
This mask has been scientifically proven to:
  • instantly brighten skin, restore clarity and diminish dullness
  • nourish the skin and revitalize the complexion
  • refine skin texture and even out the skin tone
  • leave skin feeling hydrated, smoothed and more supple

StriVectin started out as a stretch mark cream that turned into an anti-wrinkle phenomenon. It now boasts a full range of products dedicated to anti-aging skincare. The products are formulated with the NIA-114TM technology. This is a proprietary blend invented by skin scientists during 35 years of research. It has been rigorously tested under strict protocols and has been scientifically proven:
  • to energize cells to maximize skin health
  • it strengthens and rebuilds the skin’s moisture barrier
  • it inhibits the impact of environmental aggressors
  • it multiplies the efficacy of active ingredients

To use: apply a thin layer of the mask on clean, dry skin (avoiding the eye area). Leave on for 15-20 minutes or until dry. Rinse of thoroughly with warm water. Use 2-3 times per week for best results. 

You will immediately notice that skin has a glow, it looks brighter, feels smoother and is more hydrated. I use this mask at least twice a week. It is a great mask to use prior to putting on makeup or before going out at night, since it gives skin a nice glow. What I really love about this mask is how it brightens skin and makes it look phenomenally beautiful afterwards. It just makes skin look gorgeous.

StriVectin Instant Revitalizing Mask comes in a 3 fl.oz./90 mL tube and retails for $62.00. It can be purchased online at www.strivectin.com, www.skinstore.com, www.ulta,com, www.qvc.com and www.nordstorm.com.

THE NEW AUGMENTED-REALITY NAIL POLISH TRY-ON APP

FROM SALLY HANSEN: LIVE, 3D AND FIRST TO MARKET

ManiMatchTM DELIGHTS USERS WITH NEW INSTANT-SCAN TECHNOLOGY, 3D AUGMENTED REALITY TRY-ON OVER 200 SALLY HANSEN SHADES AND PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS IN REAL TIME

Sally Hansen Mani MatchSally Hansen Mani Match 2

 

Building on next-generation augmented reality technology, Sally Hansen the #1-selling nail color and nail care brand in the US is transforming the shopping experience with the new ManiMatchTM mobile app. Users can try on the rainbow of over 200 Sally Hansen nail polish shades in real time, on their nails, before they buy. A simple scan of the user’s hand from any smartphone enables the user to instantly consider and curate her own color choices. There’s no uploading, picture-taking or manual data entry, as the app works in real time. It also generates personalized-for-her-skin-tone color suggestions on demand; using cutting-edge, proprietary technology, the app senses and analyzes the pigments in each user’s hand, then matches its polish-shade suggestions to the ones optimally flattering to her skin.

Choosing the perfect shade is traditionally both the most fun and the most difficult aspect of shopping for nail color; consumers surreptitiously dab color onto a single or several nails to approximate how given shades might look on their hands in relation to skin tones, mood or outfit. ManiMatchTM flips the trial-on- ly-post-purchase shopping experience that has always frustrated nail color shoppers, transforming the process into a moment of discovery, excitement and pleasure. “The app is addictive; everyone who tries it can’t stop herself from checking out more options,” says Jeremy Lowenstein, Sally Hansen Global Marketing Vice President. “The fact that you see exactly how a color will look on your own hands is just pure fun—and incredibly useful. People end up experimenting with shades they’d never normally try.”

“The innovative technology uses bespoke skin tone analysis and an algorithm to map the hand.” – says Kristen D’Arcy, Global Digital Vice President. “It tracks the individual nuances of the user’s hands, analyzes skin tone, finds the nail beds, and photo-realistically simulates our nail polish shades, with shine: the finished manicure appears instantly on the user’s hand. ManiMatchTM generates shade suggestions across all Sally Hansen’s product lines, including Miracle Gel, Complete Salon Manicure, Insta-Dri and Xtreme Wear, so users can easily navigate and experience every color they desire.”

The launch of this app coincides with the release of the new Miracle Gel® Top Coat and new fashionable shades. Available for download for free on iOS platforms when it launches September 2015 (and select Android devices later in fall), ManiMatchTM is poised to revolutionize nail color shopping, both in store and ecommerce. Sally Hansen will host a kick-off consumer event in NYC to introduce the app. The first users to share the experience with a friend will have a chance to become the next Sally Hansen hand model for Sally Hansen social media

Review: BioRepublic Fiber Masks #fibermask #BioRepublic #sheetmasks


BioRepublic makes fibrous sheet masks that go on skin to help it when skin has had enough. To help skin when it is on the brink of disaster, when its stress is at an all time high. Sheet mask originated in Asia and the founders of BioRepublic, Paolo Mentonelli and Justin Hong, found them being used all the time when they went to Asia. So they decided to bring them here. In Asia these kinds of masks are ubiquitous in Asian cosmetic shops, pharmacies, salons, and department stores that offered immediate, noticeable results in only 10-15 minutes. And results are see in a far more convenient form than clay or cream masks. Unfortunately, Korean masks had ingredients like parabens, sulfates, triclosan, and other nasty ingredients that the BioRepublic owners simply refused to put in their skincare products. Inspired by Korean products, Justin and Paolo immediately set out to create their own line of sheet masks, formulated with American tastes and values. This is BioRepublic. Now they’re bringing their masks to you, formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, or triclosan. 100% cruelty-free.  Dermatologist tested and totally transparent.

Green Tea Detox Purifying Sheet Mask One Mask $4.99; Set of 3 $14.95
BioRepublic Green Tea Detox Purifying Sheet Mask
  • The Green Tea Detox Purifying Sheet Mask is loaded with natural green tea extract and plant collagen that provides a boost of anti-oxidants and helps to removes excess sebum on the skin. It also reduces the appearance of blemishes and imperfections to give you clean, supple and refined skin. This mask is biodegradable and snuggly fits the contours of your face. It optimally delivers vital nutrients to the skin. This mask was formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates and triclosan. It is 100% cruelty-free. Each mask contains the equivalent of 1/2 bottle of revitalizing serum. It has also been dermatologist tested for safety. This mask also contains glycerin, panthenol, camellia sinesis leaf extract, allantoin, Vitamin E, castor oil and anise fruit extract. These ingredients are quite soothing to the skin and some of them are purifying to the skin. So this mask does double duty, soothing the skin and getting rid of excess sebum.

To Use: Gently unfold the mask and apply on clean, dry skin. Wear the mask for 15-20 minutes or until dry. Remove the mask and lightly tap excess product into skin. There is no need to rinse. You want the product to penetrate the skin, as the serum is good for the skin and the mask provides ingredients that are beneficial to the skin. For best results, use 2-3 times per week.
 

 

Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Sheet Mask – One Mask $4.99; Set of 3 $ 14.95

BioRepublic Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Sheet Mask
The Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Sheet Mask is a brightening facial mask infused with natural pomegranate and green tea extract. It brightens and energizes skin tone. It evens and smoothes the complexion. And, it provides radiant, fresh and balanced skin. The biodegradable sheet mask snugly fits the contours of the face to ensure optimal delivery of vital nutrients to the skin. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and triclosan. The mask is 100% cruelty-free. Each mask contains 1/2 bottle of skin revitalizing serum.  The mask has been dermatologist tested for safety. This mask contains glycerin, panthenol, camellia sinesis leaf extract, witch hazel water, punica granatum fruit extract, allantoin, Vitamin E, castor oil and anise fruit extract. This mask brightens skin and also smoothes out the complexion. There are also ingredients in this mask that help to soothe the skin.

To use: Gently unfold the mask and apply on clean, dry skin. Wear the mask for 15-20 minutes or until dry. Remove the mask and lightly tap excess product into the skin, do not rinse off excess product. The product should penetrate the skin, as the serum is good for the skin and the mask provides ingredients that are beneficial to the skin. For best results, use 2-3 times per week.

What I like about these masks is that they help to revitalize the skin, soothe the skin, help the skin in ways that cream and clay masks cannot. These types of masks have serum in them that stays on the skin and is not washed off. The Pomegranate and Green Tea masks help to brighten and detox the skin (respectively) where as other masks cannot accomplish this because they get washed off the skin. Used 2x-3x per week it does make a difference in the skin. These masks become a regular part of the skincare regimen. Using one of these masks is equivalent to using a serum on your skin. In fact. each mask contains 1/2 bottle of serum.

BioRepublic makes two other masks, Cucumber Breeze Soothing Sheet Mask and Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Sheet Mask. The single masks are $4.99 and the pack of three are $14.95. There is also a pack of 10 masks of each single kind for $44.95. There is a 4 mask set, one of each kind for $18.99. And you can get a pack of 8 masks, 2 of each kind for $35.99. Masks can be purchased online at www.biorepublic.com, www.birchbox.xom and www.amazon.com. For brick and mortar stores see: http://www.biorepublic.com/pages/wheretobuy. There are stores and salons across the country where you can purchase them.

Review: SEPHORA Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care #SEPHORA #lipcolor #OilInfusion

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

SEPHORA Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care
This lip color, SEPHORA Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care, is a translucent balm-in-oil formula that is enriched with kendi oil and shea butter for a kind of new sensorial experience. The hybrid formula nourishes and moisturizes the lips with translucent color and a unique wet shine look. The new formula features fresh juicy colors and an addictively sensorial feel. You will love the way it feels on your lips and and how long it wears too.

I tried Bubbly Grenadine, shade no.6. It comes in 9 shades, ranging from lightest Pink Granita to darkest Fresh Berries. It feel different on lips than a regular lipgloss.It feels like a special healing lipgloss, due to the oil in it. The color goes on light and translucent, but yet it is not so light as to be too light for your lips. The translucent color still has some pigmentation to it, it is a beautiful translucent pigmented balm. SEPHORA recommends applying this product with their SEPHORA Collection Pro Lip Brush #81 ($14.00). Applied with the brush you are able to get a good layer on the lips with precision.
